Question: Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum: Does thinking about sex break your fast?
Answer: Sex is “lewdness and obscenity:”
“Fasting is a shield; therefore while fasting, one should abstain from all kinds of lewdness and obscenities: If, therefore, someone were to revile or rebuke this fasting person, let them not retaliate; rather say, “I am fasting; I am fasting.”

My question is can a husband suck his wife breast in the month of ramadan during day time but not performed intercourse, thanks
I think it is better if both the husband and the wife do not indulge in any kind of sexual act while on a fast.Â Because God says in the Quran that Ramadan was ordained so that people may learn self-restraint.
Quran 2:183 O you who believe, fasting is decreed for you as it was decreed for those before you so you may learn self-restraint/righteousness.
And remember that sexual intercourse is allowed at night.
Quran 2:187 It has been made lawful for you during the night of fasting to approach your women sexually.
Steaming pile of taqiyya, anybody?
